Best of Great American Bash WWE DVD & Blu-ray

We can now reveal the first details of The Great American Bash DVD which we learned was added to the schedule a few weeks ago.

The set will be titled: United We Slam: The Best of Great American Bash. Additionally the synopsis reveals that not only will it recap the Jim Crockett Promotions and WCW Great American Bash Events, but also the 2004 – 2009 WWE PPV events too!

This 3 disc DVD and 2 disc Blu-Ray set will be released on July 15, 2014 in the United States, below is the official synopsis:

“One of sports entertainment’s most patriotic traditions, The Great American Bash provided the July fireworks for fans from 1985 – 2009. Originating with the NWA and WCW, the event has featured legends such as the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, The Road Warriors, Sting, Randy Savage and more clashing for championship gold. Continuing in WWE, the red, white and blue pay-per-view always delivered historic thrills. Now, relive the best star-spangled excitement from nearly 20 events, featuring the greatest matches and moments from history’s top Superstars.”

United We Slam: The Best of Great American Bash will be available to pre-order soon.

However, we are awaiting the final confirmation. It has been the case historically that the WrestleMania DVD/Blu-Ray artwork is updated after the event has taken place. We hope to have more information on this in the coming week.

Speaking of WrestleMania, did you know that it airs this weekend on PPV and for the first time ever the WWE Network, are you excited?

WWE Network - WrestleMania Week

In addition to the live PPV the WWE Network will also air a phenomenal amount of special associated programming, including: 3x two hour special “WrestleMania Today” shows from New Orleans and Axxess beginning on Thursday, a live “Legends of WrestleMania” special on Friday night, the live Hall of Fame induction ceremony with the pre-show red carpet event and then before WrestleMania XXX goes live the Network will also air a special 2 hour pre-show event which will feature the Tag Team Championship Match.

It will be interesting to see what (if any) of these special events are included within the WrestleMania XXX DVD/Blu-Ray set. Pre-order your copy of WrestleMania 30 on DVD or Blu-Ray now via Amazon.com.

    I would love for them to include Flair vs Nikita and Road Warriors vs Ivan and Krusher from the the first event.

  2. Jada X says:

    What is the point of muting Jesse’s commentary on the NHB extras?? His commentary is in the MOVIE itself!!!

  3. Alan says:

    With the WWE Network having every Bash on there, it’s pointless to keep releasing these “Best of” sets when you can see the events in their entirety. Why let WWE cherry-pick the same matches over and over? Releasing “No Holds Barred” on Blu Ray is nothing more than a cash grab by WWE. They had plenty of room on the DVD version to include these two matches. I’m perfectly happy with the DVD version, and of course I have the Summerslam match on the “Anthology” and it’s also on the Network. I also have the old VHS release of “NHB” as well, which is in perfect condition.

  4. Tommy D says:

    I don’t have high hopes for this one. All of the WWE Bash PPVs were released, the most important matches from the 80’s have been released. The only thing that I can really hope for is 1991-2000 matches.

  5. David says:

    Sucks that WWE’s verions of GAB are included, but can’t deny that there were few good matches from those shows. I can see the following included, if not all likely most of these:

    John Cena vs. RVD vs. Booker T vs. Renee Dupree – 2004
    Rey Mysterio vs. Chavo Guerrero – 2004
    JBL vs. Eddie Guerrero – 2004
    Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio – 2005
    Chris Benoit vs. Orlando Jordan – 2005 (surprisingly good match, but highly doubt it will be included)
    Umaga vs. Jeff Hardy – 2007
    Kane vs. Great Khali vs. Batista – 2007
    Chris Jericho vs. HBK – 2008
    HHH vs. Edge – 2008
    Rey Mysterio vs. Chris Jericho – 2009

  6. Vintage Simon says:

    Would be good to have Michaels/Jericho from the Great American Bash 2008 in HD quality. Hopefully that’s one of the Blu-Ray extras.

  7. koberulz says:

    When will WWE learn what an anniversary is?

  8. SRB says:

    After looking at some of the past results of the GAB, I don’t think the events were that great. Plus, there was a big gap as they did not happen every single year. Most of the WWE Bash matches were pretty bad too, nothing really great there. I think this set is going to go with typical matches like Dusty/Flair, Luger/Windham, and Malenko/Mysterio. I’m hoping for underrated matches like Sting/Muta, Savage/Flair, and Outsiders/Piper and Flair. WWE could do some great things with this set, but it will be the same old, same old.

  9. Brad Attitude says:

    Hopefully the Great American Bash dvd will feature a nice collection of matches in the main contents & the bluray exclusives

  10. LP1 says:

    I guess the 2012 Great American Bash SmackDown special doesn’t count since they only mention up to 2009. Not that it was anything memorable, but if WWE counts the Raw King Of The Ring specials as part of KOTR history then they should count the SmackDown Bash as well.

    Also the No Holds Barred cage match has been released on home video before. It was on the very first Supertape in 1990.

  11. Cody Schields says:

    I bet the blu-ray exclusives consist of matches from WWE’s Bash events so they can showcase some HD stuff from 2008/2009.

  12. Bandit says:

    I’m fine with the Wrestlemania cover – just switch the guys around so it lines-up.
    Have Lesner-Hogan-Undertaker on top – then Cena-logo-Wyatt on the next line.
    Then HHH-Bryan-Batista-Orton – the four guys going for the title on the bottom.

    No Ventura commentary – No Holds Barred matches? sigh – oh well still getting the Blu-Ray
    will wait till it gets cheaper though – maybe $7.99 at Best Buy?

  13. Vincenzzzzzo says:

    I like that WrestleMania 30 DVD cover. It’s going to be a great show this year, as always. No matter how many people whine and cry, they will get more than their money worth. Since the past few weeks, I’ve actually been hoping it turns out to be a fatal 4 way for the WWE world heavyweight championship.

    WCW releases make good money for the company. I liked the 2004-2006 WWE versions of the event. Mostly because they always brought out the old school red, white and blue ring ropes.

  14. R&REXPRESS#1 says:

    Problem with this is, wwe will most definitely push the 05-09 era heavily, probably being the entire 3rd disc….this will make them cut the earlier, DESERVING nwa/wcw match list to accommodate their shit from the wwe era. If this ends up being the case & it will….again, I will still purchase the set & just trash disc 3. Bullshit though.

    • ALK says:

      But they want to ensure everybody owns the “classic” concrete crypt match and witness Bearer drown in cement again and again and again…. XD

  15. Justin F says:

    1. NOOOOOOO at the WWE’s version being covered. All the PPVs in those 5 years sucked.

    2. Boring Wrestlemania 30 cover is boring.

  16. Shane C. Montgomery says:

    I like this idea for Great American Bash DVD. WCW/NWA had a ton of great PPVs that can be made it to a “Best of: DVD. Lets hope this continues and we can finally see a “Best if WCW Halloween Havoc” DVD. WWE could release one or two of these a year and get great millage out them. Good idea, lets hope they continue with resurrecting more great classics.

  17. Mike Abitabile says:

    Ventura commentary is muted. You can find it at Best Buy for $7.99…. check the 7.99 blu-ray value bin if you can’t find it in the aisle.

    • Thebodysboy says:

      Wow. Muted Ventura!? Not even worth 8 bucks then. Glad I didn’t open it. Back to the bargain bin you go. WWE, knock this off! I’d rather not have the extra matches at all then have them bastardized… It’s just annoying to watch that way. Completely sucks the life out of it.

  18. Supersonic says:

    Hope some of the top pre-PPV GAB matches are included, specifically not all of the War Games since that already got its own comp.

    In other words, the good shit not on comps or the Network.

  19. JesseSpanoVentura says:

    Ventura commentary intact on NHB blu-ray extra matches? I’d assume so, since he’s in the film itself… But can anyone confirm?
